Everywhere and every why, the answer lay beyond the sky. Pass through the seven satellites, pass on to the place we go to. Learn to read, to rhyme, to count your primes, an earthly education. Climb the tree of life in hopes to find, the mid-space time dilation. On the Mansion World the roles reverse, a slave becomes a master. On the Mansion World the souls converse, and life moves a little faster. We unify in universe to arrive in the everafter. In the Mansion World, I might like to know you.

in theory, new parallel universes are created every time there is an opportunity to make a choice. flip a coin and it comes down tails, and another universe is created where it comes down heads. but the most important thing to remember is that we are not limited to only two choices, heads or tails! there are an INFINITE number of choices and possibilities: there are choices you make or do not make that have an effect on what happens next. there are also things beyond your control that have an effect on the future as well: the choices and actions of other people, miracles, phenomena, the natural order of things (such as gravity, matter, time, space...), and things we cant even speculate on, things we simply do not have the capacity to fathom or understand.
for arguments sake, lets continue using the coin toss as an example: you toss the coin up, and.........? 1) the coin vanishes into thin air, 2) it spontaneously combusts, 3) you get hit by a car, forgetting all about the results of the coin toss, 4) someone reaches out and grabs it in mid-air, 5) someone sticks a gun in your back and you forget to look where it lands, 6) it lands on its side, 7) a bomb goes off before the coin reaches the ground. each of these possibilities are true, and it just keeps going on and on; there are a million-- actually, no not a million-- there are infinite possibilities here, and each action springs forth an infinite number of worlds, and in each one of them the same thing, and so on and so on. by this logic, anything is possible, and is already happening, has happened, and will happen in another parallel universe; we just cant access it. (...or can we?)
